I moved from a small bedroom space to a decent size basement a few years ago. The story of how it started is here.
I have a lot of allergies which includes paint and the same two friends that helped tear up the room were willing to paint and oversee the installation of flooring while I was on vacation. (I am very blessed).
Here are the pictures to show the fun and antics I missed out on:
Disclaimer, no one was hurt in the painting of this room.
Painting this could not have been fun:
Hum-mm, I wonder why she didn’t use a ladder….
Only one wall is the purple and when they were painting it, they called to warn me that it was really purple and that they were sorry. I should never be trusted to pick out paint colors (I can hear my husband saying, “amen” to that). I can work with color when it comes to fabric. Not so much with paint. Fortunately, shelving and tables cover up much of most the walls so it doesn’t overpower the room. Phew!
And the flooring, before:
and after …….:
While not all the lights are on in the pictures above, my husband added several extra panels in the ceiling. The one thing I would do over, is to add even more lighting. Once the room was filled with work spaces, quilts, shelving etc. the light that bounced off the walls in an empty room now is absorbed.
Soon, the before and after…
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
